that's "hardball" tonight. thanks for being with us. stay tuned to msnbc all night for our coverage of the first great presidential debate here at the university of denver. it begins right now with my colleague, rachel maddow. >>> four years ago, there was no incumbent in the presidential debates. >> if you want to run against president bush, he should have ran four years ago. >> four years ago, barack obama and john mccain faced off in a first debate that was nearly canceled when the republican suspended his campaign because of the meltdown on wall street. the day of their second debate, the stock market dropped 500 points. >> now the troubles are spreading. the market took another dive today, and there are some big names now involved. >> reporter: the day of the third debate, the stock market dropped over 300 points. >> fear that the country could be entering in one of the most serious recessions in decades, led by wall street's 700-point sell-off. >> now four years later, the president who faced john mccain in those debates and beat him faces his new republican challenger for the

for being with us. right now, msnbc's coverage of the presidential debate continues with my colleague, rachel maddow. >>> political common wisdom say debates don't move the needle. >> in my state, when people lose their jobs, there's a good chance i'll know them by their names. >> they may be compelling, they may be revealing, but supposedly they don't change the state of the race. so much for that. tonight, round two. obama versus romney. after round one shocked the race. >> what are the major differences between the two of you? >> romney got no lift from picking his running mate. romney got the opposite of a lift from his convention. romney got buried after the other side's convention. nothing was working, until that clear win in the first debate. >> i don't have a $5 trillion tax cut. >> now, after the president's muddled first night, saving his best shots until the morning after. >> the fellow on the stage last night, who looked like mitt romney, said he did not know anything about that. >> after his vice president pulled no punches -- >> that's a bunch of malarkey. >> tonight in

for being with us. right now, msnbc's coverage of the presidential debate continues with my colleague rachel maddow. >>> after eight years of george w. bush, america made a clear choice. >> bomb iran, bomb, bomb, bomb, any ya. >> in our last election, war was at the center of the debate. >> at the time when the war started, you said it would be quick and easy. you knew where the weapons of mass destruction were. you were wrong. >> four years has gone by. the war in iraq, over. bin laden, dead. the middle east and revolution in chaos. dictators overthrown and a new american election that was never supposed to hinge on foreign policy comes down to a last debate on foreign policy. >> you said in the rose garden the day after the attack it was an act of terror. it was not a spontaneous demonstration? >> the polls are tied. the election is 15 days away. voting is already underway in ne nearly every swing state. and it is because of that shear competitive need that america's longest war still grinding on and our veterans and our diplomacy and our role in the world is thrust back to center stage. m

in a government with separation of church and state, for example. to ask two candidates, tell us because you're both catholic how your religion will affect your context as vice president, both candidates nodded to the question and moved quickly to a discussion of abortion. which is an actual governing question that she should have asked instead. then also her final question about what is unique about your character as a man. what about you as a man, do you bring to this office? they sped past that one, too. that's one of the examples of why asking a bunch of specific questions will eventually lead to something that just doesn't belong in the debate. but there was much more energy to it, obviously. there's much more energy in this room right now. i think both sides are going to have a real fight in this room tonight about who did better in this debate. one of the things that is not clear to me is how easy this debate was to follow. i think those of us who are well versed in everything that these candidates are saying, it's very clear. when paul ryan starts referring to the cbo, i know what he

troops and go after those who would do us harm, but after a decade of war, i think we all recognize we've got to do some nation building here at home, rebuilding our roads, our bridges and especially caring for our veterans who sacrificed so much for our freedom. we bounce back because of our character, because we pull together. and if i have the privilege of being your president for another four years, i promise i will listen to your voices, fight for your families and i will work every single day to make sure that america continues to be the greatest nation on earth. thank you. >> governor? >> thank you. bob, mr. president, folks at lynn university, good to be with you. i'm optimistic about the future. i'm excited about our prospects as a nation. i want to see peace. i want to see growing peace in this country. it's our objective. we have an opportunity to have real leadership. america is going to have that kind of leadership and continue to pro most principles of peace that will make the world a safer place and make people in this country more confident that their future is secure.

, you make profits overseas, you don't have to pay u.s. taxes. of course if you're a small business or a big business starting up here, you've got to pay even the reduced rate that governor romney is talking about. and it's estimated that that will create 800,000 new jobs. the problem is they'll be in china. or india. or germany. that's not the way we're going to create jobs here. the way we're going to create jobs here is not just to change our tax code, but also to double our exports. we are on pace to double our exports, that's creating tens and thousands of jobs all across the country. that's why we kept pushing trade deals but trade deals that make sure american workers and businesses are getting a good deal. governor romney talked about china, as i already indicated. in the private sector, governor romney's company invested in what were called pioneers of outsourcing. that's not my phrase. that's what reporters called it. and as far as currency manipulation, the currency has actually gone up 11% since i've been president because we have pushed them hard. and we have put pressu

among us, somebody who's worked with dick cheney and george w. bush administration and was a senior strategist for mccain/palin. steve schmidt, when you look back at palin versus edwards there, do you see a model that democrats should be hoping for tonight? >> well, that debate was a huge moment in the 2004 campaign. with all respect to the gallup organization, it absolutely had an impact in that race because democrats have momentum coming out of president bush's disastrous first debate performance and dick cheney stopped it cold. he got equilibrium back into the base. he stopped the panic that was going on in the party and set up the president to come back in the second debate. and also john edwards made a big mistake in that debate that we were able to capitalize on. he made an issue out of mary cheney's sexuality and people were revolt by it across the country. >> he brought it up in a positive way but sounded like he wases being craven? >> i think there was no positive way to bring it up. he's a craven person who brought it up in a craven why. but the point is that it was a deci

an election about the two of us as individuals. it's bigger than our respective parties. it's an election about the course of america. what kind of america do you want to have for yourself and for your children. and there really are two very different paths that we began speaking about this evening and over the course of this month we'll have two more presidential debates and a vice presidential debate. but they lead in different directions and it's not just looking to our words that you have to take into evidence to where they go. you can look at the record. there's no question in my mind if the president were to be re-elected you'll continue to see a middle class squeeze with incomes going down and prices going up. i'll get incomes up again. you'll see chronic unemployment. we've had 43 straight months with unemployment above 8%. if i'm president i will help create 12 million new jobs in this country with rising incomes. if the president is re-elected, became care will be fully installed. in my view that's going to mean a while different way of life. your going to see health preemus go

it was the most decisive. that's very useful to us. it corresponds to all three national polls who said obama won tonight. you're in very popular company. it's great to do this with you. thank you so much. his focus group was great. this is coverage of the final presidential debate. >> if i'm president of the united states, when i'm president of the united states, we will stand with israel. if israel is attacked we have their back not just diplomatically but militarily. >>> america remains the one indispensable nation and the world need a strong america, and it's stronger now than when i came into office. >> we're back from boca raton. the third and final presidential debate is over. let's listen from the spin room. >> david, who wrote the horses and bayonets line. the line of the night. >> the president comes up with the best lines. >> that's the official spin. i said i looked for memorable lines. that's the line people at work are easily going to be able to remember. do you think it's more than just a quip? >> i do. governor romney wants to spend more than $2 trillion than the generals want. i

take care of us. >> and in the back there, you're a student. sophomore. first time voter. >> yes. >> you said that on the one hand you like the fact that the president's trying to make it easier for getting loans for school. but not getting a job afterwards. so where do you fall? >> after this debate, i'm leaning more towards president obama. he did detail a plan on getting jobs after i graduate. >> and social issues you said moved you. what about that? >> yeah. as a younger voter i think social issues have more of an effect on my vote. i think the president's views on gay marriage and abortion line up with mine. >> a lot of talk about women's issues. a lot of talk about that. valerie, you're still not persuaded though. why not? >> i really like what mitt romney had to say about the economy, about what he's planning on doing to change things for us. and how president obama has not gotten it done over the last four years. >> you voted for president obama last time. and you're leaning towards romney, it sounds like. >> i am. >> bill, you're going to declare. >> i think i'm going to
